There were other point shaving incidents in the 60s.
I was worried when the goalie went down but the replacement has done quite well to say the least.
With respect to the basketball team, maybe discuss what changed from early in the season to now. Were those big non-conference wins not as good as they seemed at the time? Or is the B1G really that tough, particularly on the road. There was a post recently that showed most B1G wins this season across the conference are home wins.
You are right about ND in 1966. They could afford a tie since they still had one game remaining versus USC whom they crushed.
I went back and checked the results from 1936 to 1952. There were six additional undefeated teams, only three of which finished #1.
1940 Minnesota #1
1941 Minnesota #1
1943 Purdue #5
1944 OSU #2
1947 Michigan #2
1948 Michigan #1
Very interesting data. I wonder how many more there would be if we went back to the beginning of the AP poll in the 1930s?
Brady Hoke says what headset?
OSU is in FBS. NDSU is in FCS.
There are scholarships in FCS. The limit in FBS is 85 and FCS is 65. There are also scholarships in D2 but I don't know how many. The only NCAA division without scholarships is D3
They have past history of moving up. They won 5 national titles in the D2 playoffs from 83-90 (playoffs started in 1973) and 3 titles in the D2 poll from 65-69.
That is 16 titles since 1965 which is in Mt. Union territory for success.
That QB outrushed the opponent all by himself yesterday. He is a really fast runner.
Plus he won the FCS equivalent of the Heisman this year.
Yes, he did. And even when he didn't get to the QB, he forced him into the arms of another DLineman.
My impression from watching him and comments on the game threads is that he didn't see more playing time due to his defensive deficiencies.
I thought that before the four game rule for redshirts, it was a rule that any time on the field eliminated the redshirt. Number of snaps was not relevant in those days IIRC although there might be some clause in the rules that I am unaware of.
